I've been playing with embossing powders, Mica powders and Distress inks. Thought I'd make a few flowers from pattern paper, then I got carried away, adding glaze and antique gold mica powder.
I also had a go at embossing on to patterned paper and decided to put them together to make a card. This distressed, grungy look is totally out of my comfort zone, but I do like playing around.
These roses are made using punched patterned paper shapes, sprayed with mica spray, then cut down into various size bits ,embossed and glued together. The little ones were very fiddly. I then added glaze and dipped them in gold mica powder. They look so much nicer in real life, like they've been dipped in molten gold, the photo makes them just look dirty.
Many of you probably already know how to make these, but if not, let me know if you want detailed instructions and I'll do a tutorial.
This stamp is Agapanthus Cluster from Stampendous, stamped on to pattern paper, K and Co, and embossed in white. The background is the same stamp not embossed.
Everything was distressed and inked to within an inch of its life, I always go a bit over board once I get started.
I am going to enter this card into these challenges;
